Victorian Studies


Membership in NAVSA includes a subscription to Victorian Studies, the leading interdisciplinary journal in the field. The journal, which has been published four times a year since 1956, includes interdisciplinary articles on comparative literature, social and political history, and the histories of education, philosophy, fine arts, economics, law, and science and an extensive book review section in each issue. Victorian Studies also publishes the annual Victorian Bibliography of noteworthy publications. Contributors in early issues of the journal included Rene Wellek, Anthony Quinton, Asa Briggs, Ellen Moers, Walter Houghton, and Henry-Russell Hitchcock. More recently the journal has published essays by Judith Walkowitz, J. Hillis Miller, Jeffrey Weeks, Alison Winter, Amanda Anderson, and Jerome McGann, among many others.

Edited at Indiana University by Ivan Kreilkamp, Rae Greiner, Monique Morgan, and Lara Kriegel, and published by Indiana University Press, Victorian Studies is now available electronically. Issues are available to subscribers at least six weeks before they appear in print, and subscribers are notified via e-mail when they become available. The Victorian Bibliography is available only electronically, and it is cumulative and fully searchable. For more information, please visit the journal website:

NAVSA and Victorian Studies have now on several occasions joined forces for a special issue dedicated to NAVSA's annual conference. For information on these special issues, have a look at NAVSA's past newsletters.
